affective or non-specific verbal hallucination
   A term featuring in the 1974 Present State Examination (PSE) schedule, developed by the British psychiatrists John Kenneth Wing et al. As defined in the PSE, the expression affective or nonspecific verbal hallucination refers to a variant of the group of *verbal hallucinations characterized by a recognizable voice conveying one or two simple words (i.e. with non-specific content) or conveying a content that is congruent with a depressive or elated mood (i.e. with affective coloration). The term affective or non-specific verbal hallucination is used in opposition to the term * non-affective verbal hallucination.
